'Women in tech' conference launches investigation after alleged fake 'non-binary' men turn up

Article here. Excerpt:

'Feathers were ruffled after a popular conference for professionals and students in the tech industry was reportedly overrun by male attendees claiming to be “non-binary” and accessing the event’s exclusive networking opportunities and career fair.

”To honor Grace Hopper’s legacy and inspire future generations of women in tech, Dr. Anita Borg and Dr. Telle Whitney founded Grace Hopper Celebration (GHC) in 1994,” according to the organization’s website.

But in the current age, the event advertises itself as “the world’s largest gathering of women and non-binary technologists.” Tickets cost $1,300, but the organization provides scholarships to “women and non-binary” students, faculty, and professionals to attend virtually.'
